Although the Fender Rumble Stage 800 has been available for a few years now, it’s still right at the forefront of bass amp technology. You might think that the popularity of these amps is due purely to the name on the front – but after using this Stage 800 for a few weeks, I’d have to disagree

Admittedly, if you judged this amp by its appearance, you might be a little underwhelmed. The plain black tolex and dark grille cloth are very much of the ‘black box’ school of bass amp design, despite the large chrome logo on the front. Still, the sobriety of the appearance belies the tech inside.
